Rodney's Story


Rodney Clark - Robotic Surgery Patient

With a family history of cancer, Rodney believed it was only a matter of time before it was his turn. Sure enough, like his father and grandfather before him, he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. This time, though, things would be different because Rodney went to St. Rita's Medical Center for a minimally invasive robotic prostatectomy.

Using this remarkable new technique, Rodney's prostate cancer was successfully treated while his risk for complications was greatly minimized. And thanks to the smaller incisions required for the operation, he experienced less pain, less scarring and a significantly faster recovery. For Rodney minimally invasive robotic surgery meant he was was cancer-free and back on the job in no time.
